Most public intoxication laws require that the defendant created some kind of disturbance, such as injuring other persons or harming property, or posing a threat to his own safety. This element exists to prevent law enforcement officers from arresting someone who has had some alcohol, but is not creating a problem. However, in most states, the definition of "disturbance" is very broad—some states include actions such as blocking sidewalks or using offensive language. Further, if an officer believes that a person's intoxication is posing a threat to that person’s own safety, he may be taken into custody and charged with this offense.
That’s actually not an easy question to answer (and I’m not a doctor, so please don’t ask me how much water you should be drinking). So many factors affect our needs from what we eat to the weather. Obviously there are times when more water is appropriate, like after/before intense exercise or if you are in extreme heat. In other words: If you body is losing water (like sweating), then replenishing those fluids is essential. .. But unless you are an extreme athlete or spend a lot of time in a hot climates you probably need less than what you’ve been previously told.
I’m so glad that I found this site and the info about the Linden tree. Our whole block has these trees in front of the homes and little by little neighbors have been cutting them down because of the mess they make with the droppings. Every summer, the air has a thick and beautiful floral scent and I never knew that it came from this tree in our front yard! I love the smell and always look forward to the summer nights when it is noticeable but we kept thinking it was from all the flowers growing in everyone’s yards. We had contemplated cutting ours down, but never did because it shades our home and because I hate to cute a tree down. Now I have a newfound appreciation for them and will clue some of the neighbors in. I’ll have to try some of the recipes for tea and the vodka!
